The United Nations has launched the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of
Trafficking in Persons. The Fund was established following the adoption by
the General Assembly in July 2010 of the United Nations Global Plan of
Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons, which urges Governments to take
coordinated, comprehensive and consistent steps to combat such trafficking
and to adopt a human rights-based approach.
The fund will help Governments, as well as intergovernmental and nongovernmental
organizations, to protect and support victims of human
trafficking so that they can recover from their physical and psychological
scars. UNODC has been designated to administer the Fund, with the advice of
a Board of Trustees appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General.
The Blue Heart Campaign actively supports the call for contributions to the
UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking. If you are
moved by the human tragedy of trafficking in persons, we urge you to

This Campaign is good but thats not why I liked it. It was the simple Logo that they have and the Language Barrier that they have broken through. In most of the other campaigns iv researched it goes with out saying that they have broken the language barrier but most of what they advertise is in english. This I like because they have changed their logo with it. This has given me an idea on how I can link my posters together so they all work with each other as a group, but can still stand alone in their own.
